“We had the great pleasure of having Rhona speak at one of our Parent Workshops. Being a parent of three, I know how hard it is to take the time to communicate with my husband effectively but after the workshop I used the tools she suggested and was able to notice a huge difference right away. Rhona’s presentation was fun and interactive. Parents came back the next day saying that they have already started implementing what they learned.”
